Moore went 2-for-4 with a home run, an additional RBI and a walk in Saturday's loss to Cleveland.
The second baseman returned from a stint on the injured list and went deep for the sixth time this season. Even though Moore has hit safely in five of his last seven contests, he continues to hit poorly and remains below the Mendoza line. This multi-hit performance only boosted to average to a meager .179 mark.
Moore (calf) was activated off the 10-day injured list and will bat sixth and play second base Saturday against Cleveland.
Moore had been out since mid-May with a calf strain. He hasn't been able to repeat his small-sample success from last year thus far this season, hitting just .168/.270/.353 in 41 games, though he does have eight steals and recorded an .824 OPS in his last 16 games before the injury. Donovan Walton was optioned in a corresponding move.
Moore (calf) is 4-for-8 with three doubles, a solo home run, a walk and three runs over his last two rehab games with Triple-A Tacoma.
Moore also laced a single and stole a base in his first game with the Rainiers on Monday, and despite the small sample, his overall body of work would seem to suggest he's ready for activation. However, the Mariners may opt to let the valued utility man get at least another game or two in against minor-league arms before freeing him from the injured list.
Moore (calf) went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Triple-A Tacoma's loss to Salt Lake on Monday.
Moore led off and played seven innings at second base in his first game action since May 18. The fact that the valued utility man both saw a substantial workload in the field and got the green light on the basepaths certainly seems encouraging with respect to the condition of his previously ailing calf. Moore is due for at least a handful more rehab games with the Rainiers before the Mariners consider activating him.

Moore (calf) is still a few days away from resuming baseball activities, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Moore has been on the injured list since May 19 due to a left calf strain, and it appears as though he'll miss more than the minimum 10 days. A timetable for his return to game action isn't yet known, but a better idea of his status could come into focus once he resumes activities.
Moore was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a left calf strain, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.
The versatile Moore had been hitting well of late, raising his average to a still-unimpressive .168. It's unclear whether Moore will miss longer than the minimum 10 days. Jack Mayfield has been called up to fill the open roster spot.

Moore went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in a win over Cleveland on Saturday.
Moore's 409-foot fourth-inning shot to center with Kyle Seager and Kyle Lewis aboard extended the Mariners' lead to 4-0 at the time and gave starter Justus Sheffield some key breathing room to work with in his final pair of frames.

Moore is 4-for-11 with a double, a home run, two RBI, two walks and three runs over his last three games.
The sample is small and Moore's season slash still sits at .156/.274/.302, but it's a much-needed sign of life from a player who came into 2021 with elevated expectations. Moore is still showing quite the knack for making solid contact -- eight of his 15 hits have gone for extra bases -- but a .207 BABIP coupled with a solid 21.7 percent line-drive rate implies he's been a bit unlucky, though his 31.9 percent strikeout rate is also a major culprit in his struggles thus far.
Moore went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and a stolen base in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Angels.
Moore stepped up to bat in the fourth with men on first and second and singled home Kyle Seager to put the Mariners up 1-0. The 28-year-old was able to steal second before Dylan Bundy got out of the inning. He is now tied for third in baseball with six steals but is still hitting just .145/.267/.276. He does have four hits and five RBI over his last three games, however, so he's picked it up a bit as of late.

Moore is still slashing an abysmal .139/.267/.278 despite a productive first two games against the Angels during which he's gone 3-for-8 with four total RBI, a stolen base and two runs. Perhaps the success at the plate will serve as a launchpad for Moore, who's continued to see regular playing time through his season-long slump thanks to his considerable positional versatility.

Moore got the Mariners on the board with a 393-foot solo shot in the second inning and followed that up with a run-scoring single in the third.

The 28-year-old now has five steals on the campaign despite slashing a meager .132/.268/.279. His value as a theft artist would be even greater if he could find a way to get on base more often.
